Inept crime policy should be actionable
OPENING a newspaper or watching the news this past year is like Groundhog Day with the same headlines and stories of people being robbed or bashed in their own homes nightly in Queensland.
If this doesn’t make you sick in the guts, nothing will. The only upside to this repeated story is it shows the Queensland’s governments failed youth “no justice policy” is punishing people right across our great state.
This government will go down in history as the creators of the greatest crime spree our state has ever seen.
They appear clueless on what to do except hold talk fests and appoint a super hero or two to watch it all take place.
Their system of failed justice ensures there must never be anyone held accountable for their actions and rewarding criminals with a free pass to terrorise suburbs.
My question is to anyone who has a legal background or an understanding of the system – why can’t the government be held responsible for failure to provide a safe place to live in Queensland?
Any contractor or business owner who operates in Queensland has to provide a safe working environment or feel the full force of the law. So what makes the government exempt from providing a safe place to live without fear of being robbed or bashed in our own homes?
I would like to know who would join me in a class action against this lame government? If the combined victims of crime in Townsville over the past year all contributed $ 10 each we should have over $ 10,000 pretty quickly to engage a lawyer to punish this inept government. MIKE ABRAHAM,
